Summary
It has the tallest building in the world, the biggest shopping mall on earth, and economic growth rivaling China's. This CNBC Original documentary takes viewers to Dubai, a Persian Gulf city with huge business and investment opportunities-many of which have nothing to do with oil. With insight from American corporate leaders, including J. W. Marriott Jr. and GE's CEO Jeffrey Immelt, the program features commentary from Mohamed Ali Alabbar, chairman of construction and real estate giant Emaar, and Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, chairman of Dubai World and perhaps the region's most important businessman. Thoughts from American expatriates shed further light on the depth, strength, and diversity of Dubai's economy
